My grandfather died during WWII.Since he and my grandmother were divorced, and my grandmother died in 1941, I have had a great deal of trouble locating any information. Today, I found his name located on the WW II memorial site, and wrote to the NARA hoping that some of his records remain after the great fire.
My mother was told that he died in the South Pacific of pneumonia.The record I found today indicates his status as DNB - died non battle, and that he was a Private in the Army.
He is not buried in Hardin County, Ohio - his home town. Would the Army have been the one to issue his death certificate?Rumor has it that he was buried somewhere in Indiana.I have no clue where to begin to look for his burial site or records.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
